Innovative Therapy Alleviates Severe Symptoms of PTSD, Chemo Brain Fog and Other Debilitating Conditions
Oakton, VA (April 17, 2017) – A novel individualized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (iTMS) protocol for the treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders is now available on the East Coast at ISynchrony in Northern Virginia announced Director, Robert D. Silvetz, MD.
“We’ve found a great need for this treatment among both the military and the general public who have found no other relief for anxiety, pain, sleeplessness, and other symptoms of neuro-psychiatric disorders,” said Dr. Silvetz, who previously served as Chief Science Officer for 3.5 years at the original clinic that pioneered such an individualized protocol.
ISynchrony uses FDA-approved electroencephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation technologies to treat multiple neuro-psychiatric and trauma conditions. The painless and non-invasive technology delivers magnetic pulses to the crown of the head that help to realign the brain’s natural frequencies. The protocol treats those patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chemotherapy-induced brain fog, insomnia, chronic pain, concussion and post-concussion syndrome, depression, prescription opioid excess (addiction), stroke-related motor impairment and autism.
“In just weeks, individuals who have almost given up hope of leading happy, high-functioning lives see improvements in cognitive and sensory processing, memory, focus and sleep. And they experience reductions in anxiety, anger, sadness and physical pain.” said, Lorraine Cancro-Silvetz, MSW, who serves as iSynchrony’s other Director. As a psychotherapist, she specializes in the treatment of veterans, their families and civilians impacted by PTSD and TBI and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
Under the auspices of a grant from the Global Stress Initiative, a program under the prestigious International Committee Against Mental Illness (ICAMI), one of the oldest 501c3 nonprofits, ISynchrony has provided treatment for PTSD and TBI to ten veterans.
Robert and Lorraine Silvetz founded ISynchrony in partnership with two investors local to the Virginia/Maryland region. The treatment center is located at 2952H Chain Bridge Road in Oakton, VA in the Hunter Mill Shopping Mall, right off the I-66 at the Oakton Exit.
